Rumor: 320-hp BMW M135i hatchback coming next year, will get AWD option

Here is another BMW rumor for you Bayerische enthusiasts. Word on the street is that BMW is considering to launch a new 1-Series hatchback model next summer called the M135i. The news comes from the same Netherlands dealer presentation that brought us news of a 318-hp tri-turbo M550d diesel.

Rumors suggest that the new BMW M135i will be powered by the company’s N55 inline 6-cylinder engine making around 320-hp. That’s just 15-hp less than the new BMW 1-Series M Coupe.

The BMW M135i is also reported to be offered with all-wheel-drive – a new for the 1-Series.

Hopefully, BMW continues to offer the 1-Series M Coupe next year.

Side Note: At the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, BMW revealed the 2012 1-Series Performance Package (pictured above), which kicks up output to 320-hp.
